I am sorry that some of the food did not meet your expectations, this is the first even slightly negative feedback we have had about our Picnic Benches since we started them back in June this year. Firstly I would like to... More

On arrival The Fox was absolutely full of drinkers and diners but we only had the time to order drinks before we where taken to our table. The choice of menu was fantastic and there was also a special board to choose from. The food... More

ok so this place has a lovely layout. Vegetarian options are dull. Rissoto on the menu and specials with a pasta option. Rest of menu for meat eaters is dull to say the least and service is average.

I recently had my 50 th birthday celebrations here with 20 ladies. We had a private room upstairs which Mel set out beautifully. The service was first class with a lovely waitress on hand all evening. The food as ever was gorgeous and we weren't rushed. Thanks to Mel for looking after us. Fiona Fearnley

As a regular of the fox I suggested a big family meal. We waited for a while for our table as another party were taking a while to leave and had made a bit of a mess. When we were seated we waited for our meals that took a while to arrive but we know from previous visits that all... More

The staff are welcoming and friendly. And the food is to die for - there is always something different on the menu everytime we... More

Ate here last night (21/11/14) with my wife and two friends. The menu was imaginative,extensive with a real mix of foods to cater for all tastes! The quality,quantity and temperature was spot on.....my male friend and I shared the mixed fish starter which was fantastic! Don't change anything and see you soon!
